40TH ANNIVERSARY EVENT
Treasures of Tradition
SEPTEMBER 9, 2017
10:00am until 4:00pm
Servants of the Holy Family (SHF) is happy to announce our 40th Anniversary Open House Event. SHF is faithful to the traditional Latin Mass and Catholic doctrine and morals and is endorsed by Catholic Bishops worldwide who support the traditional Latin Mass. Servants of the Holy Family was first in the nation to establish a Traditional Latin Mass religious community of men, which is semi-contemplative.
SHF preserves the Traditional Latin Mass in all forms: Solemn, High, Low, Gregorian Masses, plus online. Full sacramental ministry is provided from Baptism to Extreme Unction. We offer Spiritual direction, Prayer and Mass requests, Benediction, Gregorian chant, occasional polyphony, and Sacramentals including rosaries, scapulars, Miraculous Medals, St. Benedict medals, and holy water.
SHF also houses a beautiful and devotional chapel with relics, Church treasures (Agnus Dei medals etc.), statues and other works of art depicting favorite saints.
The relics include:
Additional highlights about us for our guests to know: Servants of the Holy Family was the first to republish the Baltimore Catechism#3. In 2013, SHF published the work in the Kindle e-book format. SHF has done extensive catechetical work across the country using technology like Skype and this has led to many conversions to the Catholic Church. The latest effort in 2017 was the completion of an online series of talks about the Catholic Faith which was based on the Baltimore Catechism. SHF has also officiated over Catechism programs for children, preparation for Communion and Confirmation, and preparation for weddings. Our website offers all of theabove, plus the Gospels and Psalms, Prayers and Aspirations booklet, devotional and instructive booklets on all facets of life, videos of Masses, ceremonies, sermons and brief instruction videos. One can also find short saints’ stories and quotes for every day. We conduct Q & A sessions regularly. We welcome you to enjoy quiet, prayerful Masses in our chapel, viewing our beautiful stained glass windows, and hearing organ music performed for all major feast days and Sundays (except Advent and Lent). Four priests and additional brothers and Carmelite nuns are ready to offer support.
Servants of the Holy Family has created more than a community—we are a family. The traditional seminary program combines the minor and major seminary curriculum and encompasses high school courses, philosophy and theology. Our Mass Schedule is available on the website.
